Today we are introducing Oops a Daisy, Daisy Bouquet, Daisy Dies, Mini Tags Dies, and the FREE Father's Day Digi Image.

I have to say that today is my most favorite day of previews. Not that I didn't like what I worked with the past two days, but because I scrapbooked! Yay! I love making cards, but my true passion is in scrapbooking. I guess I just feel more of a sense of personal accomplishment when I've completed a page for our family memory books. :) Anyway, I have a layout with my latest favorite photo of Sabrina to show you!

I used Oops a Daisy and the coordinating Oops a Daisy Dies. Oops A Daisy is a full size set of 20 images/sentiments. It is another gorgeous floral set from illustrator, Nancy McKinney and part of her Whimsical Wishes line. Once again we've given stampers the choice of solid images or open lines to be colored, so there's something for everyone here!

I started with the London Market Project Pantry Kit, which was released last month and is still available, here. All of my cardstock, patterned paper from the Pink Paislee London Market collection, satin ribbon and ric rac are all included in the kit. My base is an 8.5" x 11" sheet of Choice Buttercream cardstock. It makes for a nice sturdy base. I first started creating a decorative Chevron border on the bottom. To do this, I alternated strips of London Market patterned paper and stitched them all together.

My blooms were made by stamping the largest open daisy from Oops a Daisy three times, coloring with Copic markers and using the Oops a Daisy coordinating die to cut each. For the bottom two, I added some ric rac for the stem and die cut leaves from more coordinating patterned paper. All blooms are popped up with foam tape. "You Make Me Happy" is one of the many sentiments included in Oops a Daisy. To create my title label, I stamped the label outline from Make it Amazing and used the Frame it Up 3 Die to die cut it.

I also couldn't resist making a card with Oops a Daisy and the London Market Project Pantry Kit. I used the latest Taylored Expressions sketch, TESC157. "Hello" is stamped one of the tiny tags from the new Mini Tags Die and the sentiment is from Make it Amazing.
